  1. I have got the Windsock publication, and there are lots of great photos on the internet.
  2. Wow, I had no idea about this. Great advice, thanks!
  3. Hi everybody! Thank you all, I appreciate you like my work! Absolutely agree, moreover, problems how to dye the surface are gone using real materials Finally, I have gathered some pics of the current state. The fuselage itself is complete, the port side wing needs only a few touches to finish it. I am slowly approaching to the moment, when all the rigging takes it's place. For a long time, I have been thinking about the best way how to make the structure of the fuselage. A friend of mine, who is an RC modeller gave me an advice to try carbon rods or profiles, available at RC models shops. It is quite difficult to glue this material together, as well as it is almost imposible to bend it. BUT, it is a great material as it keeps its straightness. It is very solid and strong, but easy to cut or sand it. I used those rods make all the masters and then as reinforcements whithin the parts when they were casted. Traverse struts of the fuselage are those carbon rods only. The result is satisfactory, strong enough and nice to work with it...
  4. Hi everybody! Here we go - an assembled wing. Coloured and washed 0,4mm plywood... ...an assembled rib.... ... a pile of splinters ... ...and finally an assembled wing. I am just happy with the result! I am pretty surprised with the properties of the plywood. It seems to be very fragile, but even when a single rib is assembled and glued, it is really solid and tough! Love the work with a real wood
  5. Hi everybody! For the beginning, a few photos of an engine. I will add more photos of what is curently done on Sunday
  6. Hi everybody! I'd like to inroduce my latest project and the very first one here on LSP - the famous WWI Fokker Eindecker 1/24 scale model. I always desired to build something different and original. And I've always been fascinated by models built as such a naked airframe with no (or almost no) cover or fairing. Thinking about what would be the best type to start with, I decided to choose this interesting and, thank's to the synchronization system engaged in it, the very first proper fighter plane Oh yea, another reason why I chose this plane is, that it is a quite simple monoplane! Well, currently, lots of work are already done. All of the original parts or masteres are already finished and a friend of mine, Pavel, was so kind and did a great job with casting the parts for me. A photo etched sheet with some metal parts is also succesfully finished and prepared to use, as well as wooden parts laser-cutted from 0,4 mm plywood. A finished model may look like this
